Saintly Quote of the Day (2009年11月3日)

The example of the saints is proposed to every one, so that the great actions shown us may encourage us to undertake smaller things.---VEN. LOUIS DE GRANADA.

It is so beautiful in Heaven. There is a great distance between Purgatory and Heaven. We are privileged at times to catch a glimpse of the joys of the blessed in Paradise, but it is almost a punishment. It makes us yearn to see God. In Heaven, it is pure delight; in Purgatory, profound darkness.---AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT ON PURGATORY.

Purgatory is terrible for those religious who have caused trouble to their superiors. For them a special punishment is reserved similar to that which I am enduring.---AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT ON PURGATORY.
